Synopsis

Director statement

“I focused on Iva, confronted with her mother’s past that she cannot accept. As we all are, she is drawn to judging, labelling. Only when she is able to understand (or at least allow a possibility that there is something she doesn’t understand) and to perceive different points of view, she can develop compassion for the human condition. In this sense History of Love is also a coming-of-age film. Together with the actors, we created characters who are alienated from themselves and each other, while we can at the same time sense the pain that they cannot escape as well as their need to connect.”
